Everywhere I went today, holiday shoppers were all pushy and hurried and it felt like being the ball in a pinball machine. Perhaps the full moon and the arrival of mercury in retrograde has everyone on edge.
"Pinball" contemporary abstract art is available here.
One night last year I couldn't sleep and happened upon Erica Reitman's stories on instagram. She was discussing "month of me" and I intended to participate but life happened and I did not. This year, I am doing it! YES I AM! 30 days of doing stuff for me. Or about me. Whatever, it is MY choice. I will document my thoughts, progress, and what did and did not work here and on instagram.
I am still thinking about my list but here is what is on it so far:
Get rid of all the crap/clutter in our house
Watch all the shows on our DVR
Back up all my travel photos to one hard drive
Use my real camera on photo days instead of my iphone
Weed the zen garden
Read a book
I'm not putting fitness or health related things on my list because those things are already in rotation in my life. Now I need to refine how this list will happen and schedule it on my calendar.

Hanukkah starts December 12th this year and I have got some new card designs to delight and inspire! I have been designing greeting cards for over 25 years and Hanukkah cards are my favorite to design. I love working the themes of light, miracles, and freedom. And of course, all the fried treats and fun games! The inside message of all my cards can be personalized or you can choose to leave them blank for a handwritten note.
When it comes to decorating for Thanksgiving, I think simple is best. It is a time to be thankful. Warm colors and simple sentiments are best. When space is at a minimum, consider a small print on a shelf or table. One image can set the whole mood of a room. "Give Thanks" and other fall themed prints are available here.
As a life long journaler and chronic list maker, I am happy to now be offering 6x8 spiral bound notebooks featuring my artwork on the cover in my shop. Art is not just for walls and a beautiful notebook looks great on a coffee table, too. There are many designs to choose from and they make great gifts at an affordable price. Visit my notebook shop here.
